You can read other incredible stats from Hurricane Sandy on yesterday's blog. Here are some examples of photos from West Virginia's snow:
A massive fire broke out after an explosion at the GE's Appliance Park in Louisville, Kentucky April 3, 2015. Was it weather-related?
The Ambient WeatherBridge is a breakthough in electronic weather station Internet transmission.
Eastern Pennsylvania was darkened by a massive, triple-decker shelf cloud last night. It was the first thunderstorm of the year, and it did not disappoint.
This year had been a markedly (and thankfully) slow year for tornadoes. That luck ran out last night, when multiple twisters struck Oklahoma and Arkansas.
After a few warm days, the ice was on the move, in some cases causing damage. Here are photos and videos from the Pennsylvania Storm Chasers.
Super Cyclone Pam, at Category 5 Hurricane strength, is razing the island nation of Vanuatu today. How does it compare to historical storms there?
